Socio-Economic Profile of Rural India (Volume II)

C. Ashok Vardhan (Editor)
Synopsis One of the major objectives of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie, which imparts training to Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers, is not only to sensitize them towards the plight of rural people, but also to equip them with an in-depth understanding of rural issues. The IAS officer trainees are required to prepare a village study report as a part of their district assignments after conducting extensive questionnaire-based household survey. This four-volume series of socio-economic profile of rural India is based on the village study reports of IAS trainees. Volume one on South India, published in 2002, contains papers of the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The present volume (vol. II) on North-East India covers the states of Assam, Manipur, Tripura and Nagaland. The other two volumes of this series are also in the pipeline. They cover North-Central and Western India (Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra) and Eastern India (Bihar, West Bengal, Orissa and Uttar Pradesh).
